Welcome Back! It’s always wonderful to see new and old faces gracing the Grace King campus. As a former math teacher, I revel in data; numbers for those who aren’t mathematically inclined. We’re delighted that we have welcomed almost all of our students; 1,368 to be exact, but we know that there are some who have yet to show for various reasons. I have spoken about my guiding principles in education and in life which centers on the four As: Attendance, Attentiveness, Accountability and Attitude. I, along with all faculty and staff, believe that attendance is a crucial component in achieving success in any effort. As the saying goes, “you have to be in it, to win it.” You have to be here every day on campus ready to explore, to consider, to reflect, and to apply what you have learned.
Some have not returned to school because they have yet to acquire a uniform. Please call the school and ask to speak with Ms. Bradley. We don’t want anyone to miss out on their educational opportunities because of a missing top or bottom.
The first two weeks of this academic year have been nearly seamless, due largely in part to our students’ attendance at their respective orientation. Our students are here, in it to win it!
With Fighting Irish Pride,
Ms. Sharon Meggs-Hamilton
